Airline Will Honor Outstanding Debt to Guyana Government: CEO
GUYANA — Passengers who have already paid for tickets to travel to or from Guyana with Dynamic Airways after October 3rd, 2017, are being assured that they will be refunded.
This re-assurance came from the airline’s CEO, Ray Laylor, who also noted that Dynamic intends to honor its outstanding debt to the Airport and Civil Aviation authorities in Guyana.
Dynamic Airways officially ended its service to Guyana on October 3rd, 2017.
Laylor in a media statement, said the move was necessary “as we continue to reorganize in our Chapter 11 case. We regret this development and take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their support over the last four years that we have served the Guyana market.”
He stated, “Those passengers who would have paid for tickets to travel after October 3 can be assured of refunds and Dynamic intends to honor its outstanding debt to the Airport and Civil Aviation authorities.”
According to the CEO, the company is aware of the tremendous inconvenience the end to its Guyana service will cause to its customers, “who have loyally supported us over the years, for that we do apologize”.
Just over two weeks ago, local travel agents were notified that they should stop booking flights on Dynamic Airways because of a move to suspend the airline’s service, according to a News Source online report.
The CEO said the company regrets having to discontinue service to Guyana at this time but will soon enter into discussions “with an interested party about serving this market under a new arrangement which is permitted as we seek to reorganize”.
The airline now prefers for its planes to be leased to another company that may want to serve the Guyana market.
Local company Roraima Airways, which served as local representatives for Dynamic, was left surprised by the airline’s move. Roraima will likely have to shed close to 50% of its workforce as a result of Dynamic pulling out of the Guyana market, News Source reported.
